This has been an odd week. On the one hand, I got incredibly amazing scream into my phone news. On the other hand, I got heart crushing, cry for hours news. I’ve been reeling all week, fluxing between being deliriously happy and being a sobbing mess. And no, I’m not pregnant. I’ll tell you more about the exciting news when the time comes and as for the crap, well, I’ve been self medicating with cookies, hamburgers, and meatball pizza all week, trying to get over it. I’ll be running off this particular mess for MONTHS.
Anyway, part of the week also included planning my ideal spring meal. And while the foods changed back and forth the drink was always the same- lime fizz. I am a lime fizz junkie. I love the fresh flavor, the addictive bubblies, and of course that last sip where the remnants of the simple syrup dance around with the tart lime. It’s the perfect drink for me and thinking about it makes me want to throw on a sundress and dance in a meadow.
1/2 cup water
1 cup sugar
Start by making your lime simple syrup. You want 1/2 cup lime juice, which, depending on the size of your limes, is 2-4 limes. Combine that with the water and sugar in a medium size pan. Heat until the sugar melts then remove from heat and let cool.
In order to make your drink, combine 1 ounce of the syrup, 1 ounce fresh lime juice, and club soda. And enjoy!
